The nightly curfew for the 29 provinces classified as “dark red” zones for high Covid-19 infection rates will remain in place, at least until the end of the month. Those in Bangkok and other “dark red” provinces must stay home from 9pm to 4am, unless travel is essential.

In a Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration meeting today chaired by PM Prayut Chan-o-cha, officials decided to keep the existing measures in place until September 30. The color-coded zoning is based on Covid-19 infection rates with 29 provinces classified as “dark red” zones under maximum and strict control, 37 “red” provinces, and 11 “orange” provinces.

Under the Emergency Decree, provincial governments have the power to impose additional measures depending on the local Covid-19 situation.
